Our reported performance in 2017 was roughly -2% (negative two percent) gross and -4% (negative four percent) net, compared to a +15% (positive fifteen percent) return for our S&P 1000 Total Return benchmark. Although I don't want to get into the habit of discussing performance intra-quarter, let alone intra-month, I feel like recent circumstances make it important to offer a caveat. (185-1)
